    Definitely my Ganter G7aC - not only because it's a superb trumpet, but because it's the very last one my departed friend Hermann Ganter put together with his own hands in the last days before closing his shop and selling it to a local musical supplies company, Hieber. They kept on the name and many of the workmen; but you can't have magic without a magician. Hermann's shop at the time more or less resembled Hogwarts - many young hopefuls and many, many real talents gathered to learn from him; and Hermann was something like Professor Dumbledore - not unfailing, but always winning out in the end. Most of his trainees now have their own shops, and are world-renowned for their skills. Just think of Gerd Dowids, or Franz Traut, or mouthpiece guru Holger Mack...

    I was hoping this would be here before today, the owner of the company was messaging me very early this morning because the shipment got delayed in customs.
    It should be here next week. It's not a trumpet, but we can make exceptions...
    I am friggin excite.

    I'm still waiting on the flügel, shipments were delayed.
    I've got their heavy MLP bore trumpet, which is a fantastic hooter.

    Here's a shot with the Pasión rotary flügel, Pasión heavyweight prototype, and some others.
    The rotary appears to be a large Morse taper mouthpipe.

    Something about a rotary flugelhorn peaks my interest.
